11. The school’s ethos and values:

Bournville is a school with a proud history and distinct tradition. Before Bournville became a comprehensive school in the 1970s it was previously two sibling grammar schools: Bournville Girls Grammar School and Bournville Grammar-Technical School For Boys, previously known as Bournville Boys Technical School. The technical school for boys, the city’s first technical school, opened in October 1955. The pioneering technical school later combined with the girls’ grammar school on the same site. The boys’ school was organised along ‘Public School’ lines with four houses—Belmont, Griffin, Manor and Woodlands.

We stay true to our traditions and roots at Bournville –our students wear their blazers and ties with pride. We have a proud musical and sporting history and we are unashamedly ambitious for all our students. Every child that passes through the Bournville gates is a ‘Griffinian’, following in the footsteps of thousands of ‘Old Griffinians’ who have walked our schools corridors and succeeded in our classrooms. The Griffin is the symbol of our school and a unifying force in binding us all along our shared mission and values.
